I am a long-time and satisfied client of Parms + Company. When I first met John Parms and Ted Johnson, they were obviously very bright, aggressive and engaging. I knew then they would be a perfect fit for my accounting needs. Parms + Company have been an integral part of the growth and development of my law practice. They and their staff are always available to respond to their client’s needs. Not only do I utilize their services for my personal and business matters, I call upon them frequently to serve as an expert witness in forensic accounting. Their skill, reputation, and professionalism are assets in which I trust and rely. I highly recommend Parms + Company to anyone in need of skilled accounting services at an affordable price.
